-down in america's defense. the obama administration declared yesterday the president plans to depart from these precedents. secretary of defense gates and secretary of state clinton announced the president will not use nuclear weapons against any nonnuclear state even in the event of a chemical or biological attack. beyond that the united states will not develop any nuclear weapons. our enemies must be rejoicing. it could it be more clear this president's desire to deter enemies pales in comparison to bring about his desire for a nuclear free world? how dangerous is this for the united states and the free world? joining me newt gingrich. newt is the co-host along with his wife calista of the new documentary, nine days that changed the world. which is about pope john paul's pilgrimage to poland in 1979. mr. speaker, welcome. >> good to be with you. >> sean: how about bad is this? >> i think this is the most unrealistic diplomacy since the late 20s. you have to go back to the kellogg pact to end war the whole serve yeast -- series of disarmament con tprofrpbss in the 20s the democracies doe

[applause] so that brings us here. we have to expand our target list. we have to get a few more on the list. as amy pointed out, it is a combination of worrying our friends and punishing our enemies. one thing that is so important to do, as someone who got their political career started and working for an old actor in california back in 1966 when he eventually became president in 1980 it wasn't just republicans that allowed us to get the tax cuts in and our success. their district or states are clearly conservative on the economic issues we have on the bus yet they can continue to defy the wishes of the voters. we have expanded our target lists from three to eight. we have added blanch lincoln in arkansas. barbara boxer is next on the list. the state assembly in california -- this is going to be a consistent leader on the fiscal issues, but he has been at a rally that we have ever had. he is supp

disciplines. and each operates uniquely with basically only two other institutions in america. and almost none around the world. the two in america being the national institutes of health, and national science foundation. where we allocate federal funds based on peer review. and so we bring the best and the brightest in america in various fields to assess projects or grants or scholarship. of one kind or another. and so when you ask about goals, one is to preserve the institution as it's come in to being. and has developed a rather wonderful track record. but beyond that, they are challenges of the time. and so i've laid forth two that i consider to be initiatives that aren't exactly goals but there's a hard, kind of thin line between a goal and an initiative. one i called bridging cultures where we're looking at putting a greater emphasis on what it is that makes a people a people. and then what it is that makes people differentiated. and we're a society that has a wondrous national culture. but we are also a mosaic of subcultures. so understanding ourselves is very important. and then we're

diversity in america. "washington journal" is next. . . our question for you this morning is about financial regulatory reform. do you think it will get bipartisan support? the lines are -- you can also e-mail up -- e-mail us at journal@c-span.org or twitter. senators will face a future -- crucial test vote on far reaching legislation to overhaul the nation's regulatory system. republicans said sunday they plan to block efforts to move forward unless democrats altered several elements. meanwhile, democrats and obama officials spent much of the day finalizing strict new rules to rein in the huge derivatives trade -- other coverage of that in "the washington times." republican leaders said yesterday their ranks are unified and determined to shoot down a key test vote today, potentially embarrassing scenario for democrats seeking to advance a major item of president obama's agenda. our question to you is, do you think bipartisan support will materialize today on the financial regulatory bill. and it's not today, because of differences between the parties -- do you think it will be different, pe
that any america first. to my independent brother from florida, right on, man. we need to get rid of these two parties. they need to be put out of office. we need to bring into a third party, and not fall for this tea party garbage, either. these two big parties do it every time they are not in office. we tried to be the independent, liberals, conservatives buddies. they're not our friends. they are our enemies that keep oppressing us. host: that will be the last voice this morning. in the stern, who for many years has been the president of the -- he has announced he will leave that position. on a personal side, he is turning 60. the personal aspect is much involved in his decision to leave. that is it for our thursday morning. we go to the house of representatives for today's live coverage. gues. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by the guest chaplain, reverend clyde miles, lighthouse reform church, howard, pennsylvania. the chaplain: o lord, who call this nation into being, to the lives and sacrifice of those whose hearts are state upon you. they conduct the wo

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2010] in a few moments, supreme court justices testified on capitol hill about the budget request for next year. in an hour-and-a-half, president obama outlined his plan for nasa and the future of human space flight. after that, and breathing on the investigation into the fort hood in shootings with senators joe lieberman. later, we will retire the news conference with leaders of the group to party express. >> on "washington journal" we will give the congressional agenda with sheriff brown of ohio. robert sloan is the author of an article that says wall street is the key to democracy. more about the future of nasa from scott case. it is live on c-span every day at 7:00 a.m. eastern. a couple of offense to tell you about tomorrow morning. the senate judiciary committee holds a hearing on jud
on what they want to do for america. they got a lot of hat. they haven't got any cattle. get your cell phones out, folks. i guess you could say we could have fun with this one tonight. tonight's text survey question is, who do you think is a more dangerous psycho talker? sarah palin or michele bachmann? text "a" for palin, text "b" for bachmann to 622639. joining me now from minneapolis is mayor r.t. rye balk, also a democratic candidate for the governorship in the great state of minnesota. r.t., good to have you on tonight. i guess you could say that minnesota is ground zero now. this is now a national race. how do you think minnesotaens are going to respond to sarah palin getting 10,000 people to show up and spew out all the crazy stuff they've done all along? how are they going to respond to this? >> ed, we're the happiest people in america right now. every time sarah palin comes to down she drops more money here. remember that money she spent at kneeman marcus during the convention? the fact of the matter is, minnesota is an entertainment hub. prince, bob dylan, garrison keeler, mi
rights powder keg ready to ignite all across america. >> i have instructed members of my administration to closely monitor the situation and exam the civil rights and implications of this legislation. but if we continue to fail to act at a federal level, we will continue to see misguided efforts opening up around the country. >> you can't deny it. immigration legislation has been a political land mine for politicians for years. >> i just want to make sure, do you, new york senator, support the new york governor's plan to give illegal immigrants a driver's license? you told the new hampshire paper is made a lot of sense. can you support his plan? >> you know, tim, this is where everybody plays gotchya. we have failed and george bush has failed. do i think this is the best thing for any governor to do? no. >> nobody has had the right answer for this for a long time. president obama made a promise to move on immigration reform. now he's got to live up to the promise. numbers clearly show that hispanics are the fastest growing ethnic group in the united states. they make up 46% of our popul
. this is not the sort of stuff that will fly with most americans out there. 20% of america, maybe half the republican party, perhaps. but not most americans. this isn't going to get job done in 2012 that's for sure. >> ron, i think once you investigate it for anti-americanism i think that you might be on her list. here's michele bachmann critiquing president obama today on his nuclear policy. i'm confounded about why she's upset by this nuclear policy, since ronald reagan was one of the great ideologist about getting rid of nuclear weapons in this war. let's listen to michele bachmann. >> we found out that the president said that he was going to change the united states' strategy on dealing with nuclear weaponry. did this shock anyone? so if, in fact, there is a nation who is compliant with all the rules ahead of time and they've complied with the united nations on nuclear proliferation, if they fire against the united states a biological weapon, a chemical weapon, or maybe a cyber attack, then we're not going to be firing back with nuclear weapons. >> i don't get that. i guess i'm waiting for the ap
states of america can do. and we are not going to impose any kind of peace upon palestine and israel and that is that. it was a surprising, considering what we've been reading, chris, about the possibility of the united states might lay out what we think are the basic outlines of a just and lasting peace. my guess today would be we're not going to do it. >> the question i guess is for the israelis to answer. they have to answer it in the first instance before we get to it. we could suggest an alternative over there. mr. mayor, it seems to me this is the challenge. israel has to unite the moderate arab world such as it is. jordan, the saudis, the egypt n egyptians, all the emirates. it has to get them on their side against iran in terms of iran's nuclear threat. they can't do that step unless they can find something over palestine, right? so the irony is they may have to give something in terms of the middle east situation in order to build the kind of armada, if you will, diplomatic armada they need to shut down the iranian nuclear threat. do you think that's a tradeoff they're thin
for america. eric, good to have you on tonight. >> thanks for having me. >> i guess in all of my years of radio and television i've never seen an anchor of this stature in the industry make up something to cover his backside for a lie. is this an absolute test case plus "a"-positive story? >> look, you know, you might be able to compare his efforts to cover up the lie with, you know, with other folks at fox news, ed. that would be the only possible comparison. bill o'reilly even he kind of stands alone. just to show you how bad it is, you know, we did a little more digging and found out two days before -- two days before the final passage of the final bill, bill hemmer was pushing the same lie on fox news. and just this last saturday almost a month after the health care bill was signed into law we had folks on fox business network pushing the same lie. so it's beyond open and shut case. the takeaway here about bill o'reilly is, you know, he's tried to paint himself this year as kind of the reasonable voice and reasonable man. the truth is he's just the same old bill. >> well, you know,
. if we jump cheap corn into latin america -- dump cheap corn into latin america, what happens to the corn farmer in latin america? i think we need to ask that question. it needs to be part of the conversation. because i can't imagine most people who are undocumented really wanting to have to leave their home, their families, their friends to come to a country that they don't know or they don't necessarily speak the language, where they don't necessarily really know anyone, to try to make a life. they probably would rather stay home. but there's something that is drawing them here and it probably has something to do with our, you know, the great economy of the united states, but it probably also has something to do with the trade and agriculture policy which put a lot of pressure on economies in this hemisphere. so, with that, madam speaker, i'm just going to say, i'm going to yield back for the close to congressman polis, madam speaker, who has really been a champion on this issue, who has really kept the fire burning on it and i think, madam speaker, that we all owe him a debt of gratitu
to america us -- to "america's newsroom". martha: that's going to get a lot of attention. good morning, bill, good morning, everybody at home, i'm martha maccallum, the obama administration has already sort of shunned the phrase the war on terror, so widely used burg the -- during the bush administration. sources say this new change in the language, wee moving that word, islamic, with references to terrorism is really to demonstrate that america does not view all muz im countries through the prism of terror. bill: that's the theme president obama has pushed since taking office. the critics are questioning the strategic benefit, what do we get from it. melanie wilkes is in washington. what are the changes from the white house now? >> reporter: this attempt to move away from equating muslim countries with terrorism began a year ago when the president spoke in cairo, promising a new beginning to relations between the suts and muslim countries. now his advisers reportedly want to remove terms like islamic radicalism from a document called the national security strategy. the associated press is r
, look those in new york's 21st district, including my own family, to the president's family, america stands next to poland in mourning. the solidarity of the polish people in their grief is an inspiration to us all. my thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost someone. thank you, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from oregon rise? >> to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. defazio: the obama administration has steadfastly refused to contest the tariff of $2.4 billion levied by mexico because congress terminated the cross-border trucking program due to serious safety concerns. there is no drug testing in mexico. there are no hours of service requirements in mexico. there are no meaningful commercial driver's licenses issued in mexico to know what the record of these drivers are. congress overwhelmingly voted to terminate that program. but it's rumored the next month when the president of mexico comes, the obama administration will open the border to mexican trucks. jeopardizing the
when -- she could be the devil. she could say i hate america. i want to destroy america. and that way they'll only be able to say, why do you hate gay, immigrant, black, handicapped women. >> you know, senator, it's amazing how you can make a good living talking about a guy on a commuter train after three drinks. seriously. that's the kind of stuff i heard growing up. that kind of stuff is so uninspiring and yet i guess it has an audience. >> it wasn't just what you heard growing up. this is what glenn beck said during sotomayor. he said the same kind of stuff, attacking her, attacking her qualifications when she was number one in her class and done so well throughout her career calling her emotional and all of these things and it got out there. but in the end, you heard people like lindsey graham voting for her saying maybe he wouldn't have picked her but she was clearly qualified and he was proud to vote for her. in the end, she got confirmed. i think the hearings while they were difficult at times they were fair and that's what we want to see again. all this garbage and all of thes
not move up. it performs america's legal immigration system to maximize american economic prosperity and will impose tough sanctions on employers who break the law. in arizona they passed a very draconian law on immigration because they are upset the federal government is not acting. in nevada, the republican governor sent a letter to president obama calling for action, federal action, on immigration. and i find the position of the republicans in arizona and in nevada who say the problem is one of the federal government now say we will not buy you work on it. that is why we are here this afternoon, inviting them to help was work on this issue. take a look at our proposals. i do not direct this to learn to grant only. there are 40 other republicans. take a look at this proposal. it is a good faith effort to move forward. we say, come and talk with us. work with us. >> thank you. we come to discuss this issue of immigration facing the reality of the broken immigration system in america facing the reality of a controversy law and arizona which is going to be challenged as it meets the m
're having in america right now, have you noticed, everybody is an expert on illegal immigration. everybody knows what we have to do and we all sound tough, but i think as americans we need to understand that there is a real human element to all of this. the folks that are coming across the border want to go to a better country. they want to work for a living. they want to provide for their families. they might want to do everything you're doing with your life. and, yes, we are being overrun. the latest number shows by the department of homeland security that there are 460,000 illegal immigrants in arizona, or politically correct language, i should say that they are undocumented workers. we're afraid to have this conversation, aren't we? the fact is they are here in this country, and they are illegal. we have to do something about it. you can blame bush, you can blame obama. blame everybody because we've just never gotten this right as a country. we've never really had a concerted effort, okay, we're going to fix this. we have plenty of laws on the books, but for some reason we just exit wh
america's political system? did you watch the u.s. presidential debate? what did you think? >> it's kind of hard because i actually don't live in america. i think it's like -- it's just like here. you know, you get your chance to vote. you have your own say. like barack obama, he's a democrat like the labour party. and what was his name, the republican, john mccain, it's like the conservatives. so it's very similar. >> chairman and chief executive of medco health solutions, dave snow announced his company will benefit from the new u.s. health care bill this year. during his speech to the detroit economic club. medco is the largest u.s. pharmacy benefit manager and operates the largest u.s. mail order pharmacy. this is about 45 minutes. >> back in that period of time i was there like many of you and you felt that. and you experienced that. and not only on the east side of detroit but both my degrees coming from wayne state university, it all sort of touches. it's interesting, you know, when you look at the detroit economic club, it helps set the agenda when you look at that film of bringi
on in america, so it isn't really a choice for them, this culture. to me, the culture has to start from the top and i'm going to give you an example, and i'll be short, mr. chairman, as i always am. i was governor for eight years in west virginia and we were having unacceptably high death rates in hour mines. i decided that as chief executive, that is, c.e.o., that i would go to each of the mines where the mine inspectors would gather, after there had been a death. that had never happened before. there i was sitting, as there were trying to explain to each other what happened and who should have done what. things happened. everything was different, because the culture change took place at the top. now i'm not saying that i changed the world, but it did have an effect and that's why in a secret world it end of 35 miles of hard driving, and then a thousand to 2,000 feet underground, when only a few -- or only a few people from that state or from any state have ever been, it has to come from the top. it has to come from the top. >> mr. chairman, related to that, i have been down in an underground
to figure out who among them is really ready to say no, america does not need to reform wall street. president obama today took on two of the story lines republicans have advanced about the democratic bills, sometimes even before the bills were written. first the republican claim that the senate bill includes future bailouts for the banks, encouraging them to take more risks. in fact, the bill forces the banks to create a fund that would be used for liquidating banks. >> what's not legitimate is to suggest that somehow the legislation being proposed is going to encourage future taxpayer bailouts, as some have claimed. that makes for a good sound bite, but it's not factually accurate. it is not true. in fact, the system as it stands -- [ applause ] the system as it stands is what led to a series of massive costly taxpayer bailouts, and it's only with reform that we can avoid a similar outcome in the future. in other words, a vote for reform is a vote to put a stop to taxpayer-funded bailouts. that's the truth. >> president obama also addressed the other republican argument, a perenni
's courage to vote that way? folks, when you lose your job and families across america know this, it's a crisis. when you lose your unemployment benefits it's an emergency. courageous isn't the "c" word i would use for coburn on this deal. how about coward? here he is today. >> if we pass this bill and we continue to pass more bills, not having made the tough choices, we are steaming toward a catastrophe. >> $9 billion, after all we've been through is going to ruin or fiscal house, you know? if senators like tom coburn think it's right to throw billions of dollars at iraq and spit on american workers they have many my opinion distorted priorities. let's get to the midterms. the party that ran on the slogan "america first," remember that? they need to start putting america first. if coburn is worried about paying the bills, he can go get it from the top 2% and the boys on wall street, can't he? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think about this. tonight's text survey question is, does the federal government have a moral obligation to support our unemployed americans? t
carries the flag for the america envisioned by the founding fathers. jefferson and madison would like this senator because he honors the institutions of our republic. he exemplifyies government as i was meant to be, philosophical debate, good faith negotiation and just as important, action. we debate, find agreement, we act. i've watched senator graham on any number of issues since he came to congress. on an impressive number of occasions, he has been the indispensable lawmaker, the senator who accepts the oath of wide opinion and patriotic passions. he worked for the past year to find a bill that would meet america's energy needs, but also the need for renewables down the road. he has shown courage for concern. he has joined a sound approach to immigration reform that would deal in a realistic way with people living in the country illegally. but also insists on a workable system for the illegal hiring of immigrants. his comprehensive reform in which he has been joined by john kerry. good immigration policy, good americanism. graham recently criticized the senate democratic leadership
a principal chief of the second largest indian tribe in america, first woman to do so and arguably the best leader that the tribe has had since moving to oklahoma from tennessee. she tripled the number of cherokees, she doubled tribal employment. she added dozens of programs in nutrition, social services, education, cultural awareness and, frankly, she made the cherokee nation more than it was, a force to be reckoned with. not only in northeast oklahoma, not only within the lives of its citizens, but quite frankly in indian country and in american politics. she was recognized for extraordinary achievements over her lifetime. honorary degrees, boards and foundations and, of course, again as my colleague and friend, mr. boren, said, the highest civilian award that any indian can receive, the medal of freedom. i newmanman very well. she led a life based on principles. the first one was just absolute personal integrity. one of the most honest and honorable people i ever met in my life. the second was humility. she was the most approachable person that you would ever want to know. a total lack o
to private. that is about 70% of small businesses in america. it will be interesting to see how robust that small business tax credit is. obviously, this is a category of folks that are prevalent on a daily, real basis. -- struggling on a daily, real basis. we tried to highlight areas of concern. we did not get to everything, we could not, in the 30-page document. for the immediate regulatory issues that need to be held this year, you have heard it before. this grandfather plan is huge. right now and employers are frozen in their benefit designs, cost sharing responsibilities, deductibles, so they're absolutely needs to be clarity. in addition, medical loss ratio will need to be defined. ali, they are very broadly defined. my personal hope, view here, fraud and abuse programs, programs to prevent that, care programs, should be defined as medical care benefits. if they are considered outside of your benefit dollars, it would hurt you. if you do not reach 80% in the small market, you have to start paying rebates to consumers in 2011. one thing that we have not talked about, within 90 day
morning america." sam champion reports from the gulf coast. >>> on capitol hill today, financial reform takes a vint step closer to reality. the senate begins debate on a sweeping, new law, three days after its sponsors first tried to bring it to the floor. steven portnoy has the story. >> reporter: vehicling to reporters on air force one, president obama hailed the movement on financial regulatory reform. >> it's the right thing to do. >> reporter: for three-straight days, every senate republican, and one democrat, voted to block the bill from even coming up for debate. >> we have to get to this bill. negotiations are like the world turns, that soap opera. they're never going to end, until we get on this bill. >> reporter: faced with a threat of recession that would have kept on on the floor all night, republicans agreed to end the black cade. now, they plan to force charges. >> americans want a number of things in this bill fixed. and they want more than verbal assurances. >> reporter: republicans want to strip out key provisions, including a fund to wind down failing firms. and democ
troubling. >> well, they're generally troubling, mika, because the united states of america, after nine years in afghanistan, after two commanders in chief, still have no exit strategy. now, of course, the things we were supposed to have learned from vietnam and the beirut tragedy was you never go into war until you have an exit strategy. the only semblance of an exit strategy, mort zuckerman, that we have is that we will stay there, and young americans will continue to die. and american taxpayers will continue to spend billions and billions of dollars a year. so we can prop up the government of hamid karzai. hamid karzai. that -- this man, who is contemplating joining the taliban -- which, by the way, i say let him do it. they've got a 10% approval rating anyway in afghanistan. he is our exit strategy. so if you're a mother or a father or a wife or a husband whose loved one is in afghanistan right now going out on patrol with the possibility of being injured for life or killed, you're doing it for a man who says he's thinking about joining the taliban. >> well, i don't think i would de

build america bond program, which experts have called, and i quote, one of the economic recovery efforts biggest successes. well, we heard -- had a hearing last week on green jobs. and a distinguished reporter was here. was there, i think, for all of it. it went from 10:00 until 6:00 pm. it was a useful hearing, i think. and we're now looking at further legislation. and several business spokespersons had something to say that i thought was so significant from gm and dow about the need for an active public partnership with the private sector to develop technologies shaping our future. and these two people said it could not have happened only relying on markets themselves. and it was this that characterized programs of so many of you know in the recovery act. the battery grants which have helped to spark the beginning of a renaissance in michigan and elsewhere and industrially. it's interesting as i talked to my colleagues, how many of my colleagues say i come from the state that is going to be the new center of electric battery development. so many. and i look at them and i say, you know
of the challenges that we face internationally can't be solved by one nation alone. but i do think that america's leadership is important, in order to get issues on the international agenda, and to move in concert with other countries, to have an effective response. there are a host of other issues, obviously that have to be addressed. and one of the points that was made during the communique' is we're talking here about the instruments of potential war or terrorism. but obviously they're also the reasons, the rationales, the excuses for conflict that have to be addressed as well. and i remain committed to being a partner with countries around the world and in particular hot spots around the world. to see if we can reduce those tensions and ultimately resolve those conflicts. and the middle east would be a prime example. i think that the need for peace between the israelis and palestinians in the arab states, that remains as critical as ever. it is a very hard thing to do. and i know that even if we are applying all of our political capital to that issue, the israeli people through their govern
the conversation away from his personal life into his professional life. the way to do that is to win. america loves a winner. they will forgive a lot if you you can seed. we've been talking for five months about his personal life. he needs to shift that conversation and get people asking golf questions. >> greta: it is interesting, when he was out of game i heard the golf revenues went down in so many different ways. i'm wondering if he doesn't make a comeback what does it mean for the gust this sport? >> the main and immediate impact is on the tv ratings of those events that he normally plays in. those ratings go down, unquestionably. the business model for the pga tour is solid. they've got contracts that extends several years in advance. does tiger woods give them something may have never had the most famous athlete in the world? absolutely. it doesn't mean that the business model is broken. it does mean that those events that he plays in the tv ratings are going to take a hit. >> greta: is he likely to be heckled on the golf course? >> i don't think so. this is augusta. these fans have be
. and one of them is i think there's a perception in the west and certainly in america that, you know, americans would be very surprised to find that iran has an extremely vibrant, diverse art community and one of the real strong sense of the exchange program has been around the arts and photography, et cetera. and it plays into something that another area, which is that religious exchanges are person-to-person contacting in those areas, and i know you have some experience writing about it and working in some of those areas. i wonder if you could speak to the religious aspect? and in particular you talk about civil society something as a broader issue. >> that's an interesting question, and, you know, again because iran is such a difficult country to understand, i mean, that's why it's so interesting, so dynamic, i think that americans tend to either view iran as a really religious traditional society, or as a secular one. and that somehow they don't understand that it's much more complicated than that. but i think, you know, as part of that it's -- years ago for example, even as rece

of main street america, leaving them out would be another mistake. rather than focusing on concerns of wall street, i spend my time focusing on the concerns shared with me by my constituents back in missouri. missourians expect real reform, but demand that congress -- one specific area of concern is the creation of the so-called consumer financial protection bureau. the cfpb, this massive government bureaucracy has unprecedented authority and enforcement powers to impose duplicative mandates. we're not talking about big banks, but also your community banker, local dentist, as a result, there will be no choice but to pass these added costs on to consumers, the very bill is -- peep -- the people the -- people this bill was designed to protect. the only way to ensure the cfpb does not unintentionally hurt well-performing institutioning that issue credit is to narrow the scope and authority with clear language outlining who this new regulator will regulate. surely my colleagues would not want to vote for a bill that creates a new government bureaucracy without knowing exactly what the b
